Poorboy wiring question

I have re-installed a Poorboy alternator on my GL 1200, but I'm unsure of which of the three tangs on the alternator the "exciter" wire goes to. Please see pic. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Rednax, thank you so much. I've been searching the internet for that picture, but couldn't find it. I read that it goes on the IG terminal, but the terminals aren't marked on the equipment. Where'd you find it?

It looks exactly like a B&W picture of the color picture on the box.


I bought one remanned to use on my 1200, but then I sold the 1200.
